Congrats to Jim "The Biz" Grande on a New Colorado State Record Pumpkin!

Jim Grande smashed the previous Colorado state record set by the Master Joe Scherber by nearly 150 pounds yesterday with a giant pumpkin weighing 1,283 pounds. The pumpkin was grown from his own 1019 Grande seed. The weigh-off at Jared's nursery yesterday was a great event. To see video highlights from the weigh-off go to www.pumpkinlink.com/rmgvg2009.html.

It is a WONDERFUL pumkin,but if I was Jim, I would have been tempted to get a can of orange spray paint to fix up the albino gourd!!

I couldn't agree with you more. That 1019 Grande seed has a lot of it's dad in it. Big and ugly.
